Gosschalks targets new Head of Family Law in a January transfer-style signing

As the month of January opens up new opportunities for the nation’s Premier League football teams, so it has proved for Gosschalks as we prepare to welcome Mark Reeves as our new Head of Family Law.

Mark Reeves, who has over 20 years of expertise in family law, joins Gosschalks on 2nd February 2015. Joint Managing Partner of Gosschalks, Nigel Beckwith, said:

“Mark has a great reputation and terrific track record in all aspects of divorce, relationship breakdown and children’s law, and has particular expertise in resolving complex financial disputes.

“We believe Mark will bring a new vibrancy to our Family Law team, enhancing the specialist expertise that our clients deserve and expect. We have no doubt Mark will be a real asset to the firm and will take the department forwards.”

On his appointment, Mark said:

“I leapt at the opportunity to take up the reins as Head of Family Law for Gosschalks. As a premier law firm it has an enviable reputation.

“Gosschalks is perfectly geared up for the provision of modern day family law services with a dedicated family law suite and mediation facilities at its Queens Gardens offices.  I look forward to working with my new team and getting started in what I believe will prove to be a very satisfying and rewarding role.”

Mark brings with him a strong reputation and considerable advocacy experience in the courts. He is an accredited specialist of Resolution, a member of the Law Society’s Family Law Accreditation Scheme and a qualified mediator. Mark was previously a partner and head of Family Law at Myer Wolff prior to its merger with Pepperell’s last year.

Mark is one of a number of new arrivals at Gosschalks in the last few months. Chris Adams and Matthew Hudson have recently joined the firm’s Litigation and Commercial Property departments respectively, along with Julia Madden who took over as head of the Gosschalks’ Conveyancing department.

Five new members of support staff have also been recruited throughout the firm and Claire Hill has joined as a Business Development Executive.

Andrew Johnson, Joint Managing Partner with Nigel Beckwith, said:

“These are busy and exciting times at Gosschalks and we are hopeful there will be further opportunities to take on new recruits in the near future as the firm continues to grow.”
